This is the second of melodeon player Simon Care's anthology albums, collecting tracks from multiple different projects that he's been involved in. (The first was the confusingly titled 'The Box Set').

This album is a must for anyone who's seriously interested in the English melodeon, which is showcased here in a very wide range of different musical styles. There's morris of course, both from the electric Morris On band (Shepherd's Hey, Old Tom of Oxford) but also more traditional treatments of Princess Royal and List for a Sailor.

In addition to Morris On, there are other Ashley Hutchings projects represented here. 'Til the time we meet again, from the Lark Rise band, is a song to the tune of the finest English waltz, Michael Turner's Waltz (admittedly identified by Mozart as a German country dance, but there we go). There's also a track from the Albion Christmas Band, which I would like much more without Hutchings' ponderous voiceover. And there's a fine version of 'Matty Groves' from the one-off band formed for Cecil Sharp's centenary.

All this is great, but for me Care's great skill at melodeon is providing a driving melody as part of a big electric band. And there are four different ones here. Tickled Pink is Care's own band, represented here by a high-energy electronica version of Soldier's Joy. Edward II are the famed fusion of reggae and folk; the track here is 'Heathrow Dawn'. 'One Way Ticket' is a track from the fantastic ska folk band Whapweasel, now reinvented with a dual-melodeon front end. And finally, the mysterious 'Studio G', which is described elsewhere as 'an unreleased album featuring members of Steeleye Span and Stefan Hannigan' I'd like to hear the whole thing.

This album's very varied. It would be a good introduction to Care's music, and also give you loads of ideas for other music to check out.

I foolishly bought this as a fan of Simon Care and thinking from the title that it would be more of Simon's amazing melodeon playing and Morris tunes .. WRONG it is full of electric garbage music which is anathema to any folk music fan.

Simon Care is a great melodeon player and folk musician - he should stick to what he's good at, because he's definately NOT good at the sort of crap which inhabits this dismal piece of work.

Note to self .. listen to the sample tracks before buying another Simon Care album! :(
